Just briefly, the man in the article above is Paul Allen, co-founder of MICROSOFT! So, if any of you have friends at Microsoft and you feel like mentioning to Mr. Allen, "Hey Paul, let me tell you about another historical connection to the Hood. Ever heard of the USS Strong DD 467?", let's just say it wouldn't bother me one bit. :o)
Enjoy reading the article and learning about the history of Hood. This was just one more connection to Wellings, and to the history of the future captain of Strong. I have David's book on Hood and Bismarck listed on the Navy Links & Research page.
